For a show about the growing war between the old gods and new gods, you would think American Gods fans wouldn't be too thrilled with things being "quiet" or "dull" or "boring" – but STARZ's series had a bit of a bumpy ride heading into its second season. But after a return that gave the […]
Viz Media previewed their new Netflix Latino kung fu anime action series Seis Manos at this year's Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC). The series features three orphaned martial arts warriors who join forces with a DEA agent and a Mexican Federale to avenge the murder of their mentor on the streets of their tiny border […]
Eleven years ago, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino combined forces for Grindhouse. Aiming to capture the exploitation cinema of the 70's, the films they created for the double bill, Planet Terror and Death Proof, had all the cheap effects and film burns you could hope for. They even had not only old school refreshment ads […]
Springboarding off the sucess of series like Castlevania, Netflix is broadening its anime horizons internationally with original anime Seis Manos, Deadline Hollywood reports. Set to launch globally in 2019 from Viz Media LLC and Powerhouse Animation, Seis Manos is the streaming service's first original anime set in Mexico. Powerhouse CEO Brad Graeber and writer Alvaro Rodriguez (Machete, From Dusk […]
Starring Danny Trejo, Alexa Vega and Lady Gaga as "whoever she wants to be."
One of Machete's big ideas moves, it seems, is to pull out somebody's intestines and then find some other deadly use for them.
This might work. It certainly looks colourful and poppy.
Maybe this is less fantasy than it is prophecy.
Yes, as has been widely noted by the gossip press, Charlie Sheen is using his birth name of Carlos Estevez for this film. Or at least this trailer.
Here's Sofia Vergara as Desdemona. As you'll see, this is pretty much business as usual for the Machete movies.
Robert Rodriguez puts another young lady in chaps. Have we found his fetish?
Lady Gaga is ... wearing an entire wolf skin.
Sofia Vergara has pretty much passed me by – and that's speaking as somebody who has actually met her and mini-interviewed her. She just didn't make much of an impression on me, and I don't know why. Maybe if I had ever seen her do something memorable on screen. Robert Rodriguez might fix this for […]
Promoting the new Blu-ray and DVD release of Roadracers (buy it, it's great, and cheap), Robert Rodriguez has spoken about his next few months putting a pair of well-anticipated sequels before cameras, and how incredibly busy he's going to be. At the moment, he says, the plan is for him to direct Machete Kills entirely […]
This sales poster for Machete Kills, the middle part of the planned trilogy, is circulating at the EFM in Berlin.
This Friday, Machete finally makes his way to UK cinemas. To herald his arrival (as if the explosions and screaming wouldn't be enough of a tip-off), here's a new interview package* with Robert Rodriguez, Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba revealing, amongst other things, the origin of the already-immortal catchphrase "Machete don't text". [flv:machete.flv […]
We're living in the age of the fake trailer movie, with Machete reaching US cinemas today, Eli Roth once again promising us a full-length version of Thanksgiving, and – in via pretty tangled tango across the meta spheres – a new, real trailer for Hobo With a Shotgun. The original Hobo trailer was an entry […]
Here's a new, and most work-unfriendly trailer for Machete from IGN. It features the best jumping out of a window, swinging back into the window below stunt that I've seen in quite some time.
Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Manquis' upcoming Machete is, in effect, a sequel – except, it isn't a sequel to a film, but to a very well loved trailer. This time round, trying to create a feature that audiences will accept and enjoy, they don't have the same degree of liberty that making a fake trailer […]
